Following the announcement in a letter from departing Interior Minister Rabbi Aryeh Deri that leniencies for individual tourists to enter Israel would be upcoming, the Chaim V’Chessed organization said Monday that the details are not final. Although officials met to discuss a possible date on Sunday, no conclusion was reached.

Chaim V’Chessed recommends exercising caution when making travel plans to Israel with this in mind. Details remain to be determined by the relevant government departments, and with a new government and health minister just sworn in, implementation of expected leniencies could be delayed.
